Next Generation of Water Moving Technology

XF150 - 5000 GPH, 50 Watts Max

The Maxspect Gyre is the world's first "gyre"- generating water moving device for aquariums. Compared to traditional powerheads and wavemakers that are based on propeller nozzle flow technology, the Maxspect Gyre is based on advanced crossflow technology which produces massive horizontal water movement leaving little to no deadspots in its wake.

Features

  • Crossflow Technology
  • Discrete Design
  • Directional Twin Flow Cages
  • Evenly Distributed Flow
  • Gyre Generating Flows - Virtually No Dead Spots
  • Controller with Mountable Cradle
  • Waterproof Mounting Magnet
  • 12 Month Warranty

Maxspect Gyre Crossflow

Maxspect Gyre Propeller

Why gyre generator and not wavemaker?

Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are in fact moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium.

On the other hand, gyre generators excel in moving sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer flow of water is so strong that i would bounce back from the opposite site to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, ie. generating "gyre flows".

Dictionary Definition: gyre (jīr) Pronunciation Key

Gyres are ocean current systems that basically move the water in a circular way. A spiral oceanic surface current driven primarily by the global wind system and constrained by the continents surrounding the three ocean basins (Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian). Each ocean basin has a large gyre in the subtropical region, centered around 30° north and south latitude. Smaller gyres occur at 50° north latitude in the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The direction of a gyre's rotation is determined by the prevailing winds in the region, with the large subtropical gyres rotating clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.
